November 5, 2008 - Jinfonet Software announces the general availability of JReport 9.


The latest release of this flagship reporting solution touts more than 50 enhancements. JReport 9 delivers these enhancements in three key areas: performance, usability and standards support.


Performance improvements with the report engine are focused on faster response time and better scalability. Through internal system tuning and minimizing redundancy, JReport now has a smaller footprint with faster response time for on-demand report generation, report delivery and interactive reporting and analysis. Benchmark results show that it is up to 40 percent faster compared to the previous version.


One of the key performance improvements is Multiple Report Bursting. With Report Bursting, JReport 9 runs the report once and distributes results to different recipients according to predefined criteria.


JReport now also provides enhanced report delivery using Page Level Security. A pre run report can be shared by a large group of users, each permitted to view only the authorized portion instantly. And by reducing the system footprint (memory usage by reports), JReport 9 now provides enhanced scalability.

Usability is improved with a simpler interface and more tools that enhance productivity. Redesigned report wizards make report creation more natural. A Launch Pad makes the system much more accessible and intuitive. New productivity tools include relative date support (for example, first day of last month), runtime user defined formula, runtime user defined filter for any report component and a customizable user interface.


JReport 9 also provides new features for developers. From development tools like cascading parameter wizard to deployment features like server monitoring, JReport 9 provides better usability for developers and administrators alike. Charting enhancements include control of label font and orientation as well as flexible axis label and tick marks.


This version now provides interactive map support. Map definitions can be imported from ESRI Shapefiles or defined by developers. With the conditional formatting, the appearance of the map and each area can be fully customized and controlled. For Eclipse users, JReport 9 now comes with a Report Designer for Eclipse Plug-in, allowing report design directly within the Eclipse IDE (Interactive Development Environment).


JReport 9 will be available on November 10, 2008.
